HEFLIN — Within a year a new fire truck will be rolling on the streets of Heflin, thanks to a federal grant. 

Jonathan Adams, Heflin’s fire chief, said the new truck is a tanker-style truck which holds over 1,000 gallons of water. The truck will be paid for through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant program, a federal program which supports first responders.
